About Us

A popular auction house in Lymington that closed down in March has been saved by a father and son.

The premises, in Emsworth Road, were formerly run by George Kidner and had been an auction house for over 50 years.

The new owners are vintage toy specialist Nick Powner and his son James Powner.

Many local people were concerned the building would end up converted into luxury flats.

We’re very happy to have taken over the building and business lock, stock and barrel, and have refurbished the premises inside and out. This included constructing a new wooden rostrum where the auctioneer can wield his gavel.

Lymington Auctions would like to focus on Jewelry sales but also hope to develop cars and automobile auctions.

Our valuations are free. They are held every Monday at the saleroom, or the client’s home. We’re happy to travel anywhere throughout Hampshire and Dorset.

Sales will be taken by a senior valuer and auctioneer Steve Ozier.
